Stakeholder workshop on territorial supply constraints in EU retail

This workshop gathered representatives of relevant stakeholders – retailers, wholesalers, suppliers, consumers, academics, EU member countries and the European Commission – to discuss the outcomes of the fact-finding on territorial supply constraints (TSCs) contracted by the Commission, and the possible way forward.

The Commission published the final report of the TSCs study, carried out by VVA and London Economics Europe (LEE) on behalf of the Commission, on 19 November 2020 (see below).
